BMW Car Show

BMW Show Lite

Sunday 13th June 2021 at Santa Pod Raceway
with Saturday Night Special RWYB Saturday 12th June 2020

The BMW Car Show at Santa Pod Raceway welcomes all BMWs - race cars, show cars, modern, retros, classics, new minis and BMW bikes.

BMWs have all the right elements to make great drag and drift cars. Powerful engines, rear-wheel drive and stable handling all add up to unbeatable straight-line and sideways fun. It's no wonder so many BMW owners are hooked on Run What Ya Brung and Drift What Ya Brung events at Santa Pod Raceway. It's for this reason that Santa Pod introduced an event exclusively for BMW owners, where the track is open only to Bavaria's finest. Camping is available to all those that wish to stay for an extra day of fun at the Pod with RWYB on Saturday and music in Fuelers bar on Saturday night plus fun fair rides.

Covid-19: We are pleased to announce this 2021 date. The exact line-up for this event will be announced in due course as we understand more about the COVID-19 restrictions that may be in place nearer the time. In 2020, Santa Pod Raceway was proud to have become a COVID secure venue and operated several events successfully throughout the changes in Government guidelines. Santa Pod was able to accommodate full drag racing track action together with a range of exhibition vehicles on and around the drag strip as well as the popular camping element to our shows. Grandstand viewing, show car displays, catering and trade stands, were all executed in an approved COVID secure manner so you can expect all those kind of activities again at the very least but we’re hoping to expand our offering of course!

At Santa Pod Raceway the safety and welfare of racegoers, participants and our staff is our highest priority. To ensure our site is Covid secure, visitors will find hygiene, social distancing and safety measures around site in line with Government guidance. View the latest information regarding how the situation is affecting events at Santa Pod Raceway on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) page.
